This comfy lake side cottage offers everything you need for a wonderful stay on beautiful Lake Cherokee. It's an easy drive to Clemson, Cashiers, Lake Keowee, Lake Jocassee, Long Creek, Walhalla, several waterfalls, and much more. Greenville is about an hour. It sits next to Sumpter National Forest for great hiking. Lake Cherokee is a private lake and only insured owners are allowed boats. Jet skis are also not allowed even for homeowners here. The good news: we have a row boat, and a canoe, which are usually available to share with our guests. We also have youth kayaks to share. Clear water, fishing, (catch and release bream, but ok to keep small bass and any size carp). Beautiful mountain vistas make this an unforgettable family or couples getaway. Sit by a campfire in the evening or just enjoy the solitude from your deck or the dock.

Why Barbara or David Dollner chose Tamassee
This is a small (300 acres) peaceful lake. Property owners are allowed insured ski boats, pontoons, etc so you will see these but renters are not allowed to bring their own boat or other motorized water craft including Jet Skis . We have a row boat, canoe, youth and kayaks to loan. If you would like a trolling motor you may bring your own small electric one for either the canoe or row boat. We have one to rent as well.
What makes this Cottage unique
We are next to Sumpter National Forest. Waterfalls, hiking, white water rafting, Cashiers, The Highlands, are all close by. Several lake owners are Clemson fans which is a short drive so it is a great spot to gather and attend a Clemson game. It is great for two couples or a small family. We are really close to Devi's Fork State Park which is the public approach to entering Lake Jocsssee. You can rent a ski boat, pontoon, stand up paddle board, kayak and more at Devil's Fork. Lake Jocassee is also a premier scuba diving venue and quite possibly the most beautiful lake in the U SA. Lodging is limited at around Jocassee so many of our guests stay here but spend a good bit of time at Jocassee. However, Lake Cherokee is a fantastic lake with pristine water for swimming and beautiful mountain views . Google UpstateSC for lots of things to do in the area. We are just off Highway 11....Tamassee, SC

This lake front cottage is awesome! Comfortable, clean and very well stocked in every room! Barbara was a delightful hostess, meeting me upon arrival and answered questions, etc... and had fresh flowers throughout from the garden. Lake Cherokee is beautiful and I was able to enjoy canoeing with awesome mountain views. Would definitely recommend!
Thank you for the great review! You were a great guest as well !
Any VRBO host would be luck to have you as a guest!
Our time at the lake cottage was wonderful.
My family loved the lake cottage and would love to return at some time. Barb was wonderful and very welcoming!! Thank you for making our stay seamless and enjoyable.
Perfect family weekend getaway!
Our family of four had such a wonderful time at Lake Cherokee! The house was perfect for a relaxing and fun weekend getaway. Barbara and Dave were incredible hosts, and their sweet cottage felt like a home away from home the minute we arrived. Our five-year-old daughter loved the lake, and spent the entire time swimming from the beautiful dock/boat house. Even our four-month-old little boy had a great time! We loved having the use of a row boat, and rented the trolling motor, which allowed us to explore the lake. We can’t recommend this house and hosts enough, and can’t wait to come back!
Amazing time - great memories!
This was such an incredible time for our family. We unplugged from everything and just the time in nature was great for the soul. Thanks to Barbara and David for great hospitality. House was clean, well stocked and the location to the lake was perfect. The canoe and kayaks were a huge plus. Big yard to play in, lake was calm and private, and very close to waterfalls, hikes and more. The only thing I would suggest is bring your deet with you! LOL Gnats are crazy at times but with spray you should be fine. We will be back, it was one of our best vacations ever.
Great Weekend and Awesome Lake Cottage!
Had a great weekend at this Awesome lake cottage. Direct access to the private lake allowed us to fish, kayak and canoe at our leisure! Its a few minutes to Table Rock, Devils Fork State Park and Jocasse, the places we enjoy the most in the area. The owners are super and very accessible. Made for a great experience and well spent family time! Will definitely book again!
Great Property and wonderful owners.
If your looking for a great quiet place to get away and enjoy some great fishing on a nice lake, then this is your spot. The owners are wonderful and both came by on our arrival to welcome us to the home and make sure we had any and everything we needed. I really cant say how wonderful the home is. Its nice cozy and setup just to be able to enjoy your stay. The lake was a great added bonus. I fished morning and afternoon and never had a problem catching bass. The Dollners were always within a txt or phone call away and answered any question we had, from closest places to eat to where we could go see waterfalls. They were very respectful of us as we stayed the week. They cut the grass, dropped off a float and picked up our garbage and we never even seen or heard them. Again I cant say enough good things about the property and the owners. Def would look into going back in the next few years. Me and the wife even had discussions about looking into possibly getting one of the houses on this lake. Beautiful area and great people. You seriously cant go wrong getting this place. Thank you again Dollners for a wonderful week.
